Sustainable, or “green” event management is event project management that achieves the event goals without compromising sustainability principles. Sustainable event stakeholders adhere to sustainability principles and choose renewable energy, socially responsible vendors, and local suppliers whenever possible.
Toronto is a hub of sustainability-committed events. It is easy to find a “green” venue and responsible catering even for a large scale event. The main challenge for sustainable event planning in Toronto is transportation: it is both essential for the success of an event and has a significant environmental impact.
Transporting the event guests by a charter bus is the most sustainable option after asking them to walk and cycle. Even though buses are large vehicles emitting more CO2 than small cars, Bus.com bus charters cut the event’s carbon footprint at least in half because they allow the transportation of large groups at once.
